Santa delivers

Santa Claus delivered a little early in Vernon Friday.

The jolly man in red rode through town, with an entourage of vehicles (instead of his usual means of transportation, reindeer), all packed with toys and delivered them to the Salvation Army.

The toys were collected by Toyota, with the help of Silver Star Mountain Resort, The Morning Star and the Village Green Centre.

The toys will mean hundreds of local children will have a special gift Christmas morning, as struggling families can come pick out toys from the Salvation Army toy room for their children.

The room is brimming with tables full of colourful kids figures, dolls, teddy bears and more. But one section of the room is a little lacking. More toys are needed for 11- and 12-year-old children.
